In the past few weeks, I have spent more time horizontal than vertical. I haven't decided whether that's incredibly luxurious or outrageously lazy. Granted, I have a few excuses. Most of all, Reece and I have been battling a helluva cold and/or flu. A hammock is an ideal place to recover.
When you don't have a lot to do, it's amazing how little you actually get around to accomplishing in a given day. There are times when reading or listening to music actually seems like too much of a chore. And it's not just us, I swear. This phenomenon has struck every person in our group. You know you've fallen into a particlarly sedentary lifestyle when "took a shower" is a perfectly legitimate response to the question, "What did you do today?" In fact, that is pretty much all I did on this fine sunny day. Well, that and took a dip in the pool, read a chapter of my book, and wrote this blog entry.
